Jonah Austin Update

Three star OT Jonah Austin has put Michigan in his top four schools along with Arkansas, Houston and Tennessee, despite never visiting Ann Arbor. Austin is the teammate of fellow O-Lineman Trai Turner, and also Safety Renaldo Thomas, who were both UM targets before committing to LSU and Tulane respectively. 

The bad news is that Austin plans to make a decision before his season starts, and without a visit to Ann Arbor, I don't rate Michigan's chances very highly. It's surprising that he wants to commit early because LSU told him they would offer if he showed improvement during his senior year, and he had expressed a lot of interest in playing with his current teammate, Trai Turner. 

He's camped at all his favorites except Michigan, so you have to think that unless a quick visit happens in August, he'll go elsewhere.
